Back in August and September 2020 we did two, 20 expression tastings of bourbon and rye. Now for the final one of this series we are doing a split where the assignment will be to pick which is rye or bourbon and then rank on a scale 1-5. We will have everyone tally the style of whiskey and grade them on Zoom poll questions, and after all 20 have been tallied, we will reveal the bottles.
A scorecard will be included in each kit. We strongly suggest tasting + grading the whiskeys (notes, ratings scored, and pick rye vs bourbon) over several days BEFORE the Zoom. Also suggested is to save about a 1/3 to re-taste during the live event. This is going to be an educational tasting and a chance to try whiskies of varying degrees of quality and price, blindly, next to each other, and see how it all nets out. This will be a small meeting of about 20 members just like the previous.
mark and score the 20 samples BEFORE the Zoom event
sample size = .75oz
Big thanks to Josh Peters for making this happen!
